Scenic 10 minute Reef Helicopter Flight

See the expanse of the Great Barrier Reef from the air with a Nautilus Aviation Helicopter scenic flight. Departing from a heli-pad moored at Agincourt Reef, close to the Quicksilver platform, a 10 minute scenic helicopter flight is a must to see a different and spectacular perspective of the jewel-like ribbon reefs. Experience the scope and majesty of the Outer Reef.

Taking you up to 150 metres [500ft], see opal blue reef lagoons, vast coral formations, marine life and the fantastic patterns that are at the reef’s outer edge. Be sure to bring your camera along to capture your own postcard-perfect photos.

Helicopter flights can be booked onboard but to avoid disappointment as spaces are limited, we recommend you enquire at booking.
